strace of "service gpm restart"
do you have a /dev/psaux? You may need to have gpom point to
crw------- 1 root root 10, 1 Jan 21 11:12 /dev/psaux
crw------- 1 root root 10, 149 Jan 21 11:12 /dev/input/mouse
"system-config-mouse --device /dev/input/mouse --emulthree
msintellips/2" doesn't help.
Changing /etc/sysconfig/gpm to have DEVICE="/dev/input/mouse" doesn't
/etc/sysconfig/mouse has this little gem -
Seems that /etc/X11/XF86Config also had the doubled "/dev//dev" problem.
Manually fixing /etc/sysconfig/gpm, /etc/sysconfig/mouse, and
/etc/X11/XF86Config to point to /dev/input/mouse causes X to fail to
start - xf86OpenSerial fails to open /dev/input/mouse.
It's input/mice, actually.
